Description

Rich in flavor, this Beet and Black Basil Pesto also features a unique rich color. Owing to the beets and black basil, which is a deep purple color, this pesto sauce has a unique magenta color that is quite fun. Seasoned with herbs and spices and containing plenty of parmesan, this Beet and Black Basil Pesto is a must try on a bed of your favorite variety of pasta. Serve with freshly grated parmesan and ground pepper.
